MATCHY-MATCHY MERMS, AMONG OTHER THINGS

My old boss snapped this on a recent work trip to Tokyo. Apparently the man perm—aka MERM—trend is rampant there. She actually played a game with her colleague…let’s call it Punch Buggy MERM. Needless to say, her arms were considerably bruised.

NO idea what’s up with the matching jackets though.

THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE PERM TREE

If I’m being perfectly honest, those perms are the least of our problems.

[UPDATE: Upon seeing this photo again, my Mom reminded me that I was the one who styled her in that outfit. To which I replied, “How are you gonna let a 14 year-old tell you what to wear?!”]

What I said: “I want wavy hair, like the one that all the Korean movie stars have.”
What the grandma that permed it heard: “I want hair just like yours.”

Got the perm during a trip to China. I asked for “subtle wave” and they gave me “Poodle.” It was a lot worse 2 weeks before this photo.
